Abstract: There are many examples of visual program representation, but there is an unexplored area of sonic representation—audialization⁠—of programs. The Thread Safe Audio Library (TSAL) provides the necessary tools to create such program audializations. TSAL is a platform-independent, object-oriented C++ library that provides thread safe classes for synthesizing sound from a program. By adding TSAL calls to a sequential or parallel program, its behavior can be represented with sound. Audializations require a unique interpretation that may greatly benefit auditory learners and other programmers who are looking for a different way to profile a sequential or parallel program.
